I haven't noticed any change in price however the only change I've experienced is certain shipping options for USPS isn't available, although it's still within the estimated delivery dates (with no change to shipping template). It either forces me to purchase a more expensive label that cuts into profits or purchase labels from another source causing me to lose my protection.

UPS was great when we had sponsored rates which seem to have gone away on July 1st, was quicker and more cost-effective. Strike was adverted, what's going on.

Yet the buy shipping for international orders only allows me to choose DHL, which is a 45 minute drive from our shop.

Even through we do not have DHL enabled for our customers to choose. Shipstation and other providers do not have this limitation, and show better pricing, while also providing better bulk tools to handle orders.

Is USPS Ground just rebranded parcel select? We refuse to use parcel select. We stopped using it years ago because of reliability issues. I think the problems were magnified for us do to the fact that we ship a lot of larger items (i.e. 48x8x8 32lbs, 72x8x8 45lbs etc....) . Lots of late deliveries, parcels going missing and stuff like that. Heck, as a rule of thumb we won't even use Priority unless it's $5.00 or more cheaper than UPS (rarely). Parcel Select is however quite frequently a good bit cheaper, but we have PTSD. Though this was before Amazon Buy Shipping was implemented. So, we're kind of curious.

Now if only we could have the USPS Ground Advantage service added to the Buy Shipping features after waiting 2.5 weeks for it.

USPS Media Mail is always $3.92 for up to 1 pound. Same as 'the window' @ USPS.

When will Ground Advantage rates take effect on Amazon. All other platforms already have this.

I haven't tried UPS lately because most of our shipments are to the east coast and there is no discount on the longer haul prices.

I noticed a huge savings on my USPS shipments for the past few weeks. I was thinking I did something special and received a great discount. I guess Amazon is being nice, maybe making up for the mega amount of hours I spend weekly trying to fix my product pages they messed up recently.

And so does every other platform with commercial base rate. The only advantage to Amazon Buy Shipping is their alleged promise to protect you from scammer claims of non receipt.
